House Plans with
Strong Resale Value

Build a house anyone can buy

LifeStage Home Designs incorporate the tenants of universal design to allow ease of access for anyone – regardless of ability or age. This means the home has no barriers or challenges that would prevent people of varying abilities, ages and needs from living comfortably at home.

When you purchase a LifeStage Home Design, you’re building a home that is welcoming to everyone – thus, a larger number of people are able to consider buying it. If you ever choose to move from your LifeStage home, you’ll know that you’ll have a large pool of interested buyers, because your home will be ready to move in for a growing demographic of families with aging parents, those wanting to age in place, or people requiring wheelchairs or walkers. Your home will be ready to sell without renovations or updates.

LifeStage Home Designs appeal to:

  • Multigenerational families – those who have children, grandparents or other relatives living together
  • Families caring for aging parents at home
  • Families with a member in a wheelchair or walker
  • People looking to age in place / never move
  • People who want a forever home

Universal design features for everyone

A house built with a LifeStages Home Design will not require adding ramps, moving bedrooms, or doing any major renovations. You’ll build a home suited for aging parents, children of differing abilities, and anyone of any ability. You’ll build a home anyone can buy.

Find out more about the design choices that can make multi-generational living more comfortable.
